Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Vizcaya VXOP rum is produced from sugar cane that is distilled in small batches then aged for between 18 and 21 years in bourbon casks.
The Oliver & Oliver distillery that produces Vizcaya VXOP rum was founded by Oliver Juanillo in the 1800s. It originally operated in Cuba, but in the 1959 revolution moved to the current Dominican Republic location.
It's really not that good honestly. It's simple beyond words. Its 85% oaky 10% vanilla and some sugar and trace other things. The bottle is nice to have in the cabinet but really it's nothing special. Honestly buy 2 bottles of brugal anejo. They taste identical except brugal has a slight less oak flavour. Drinking this straight is alright. Slight burn but nothing bad. Honestly Brugal is made in Dominican Republic and so is this. It would be no surprise to me if this was made in the same place using the same formula as brugal just in a different cask. It might be slightly less smooth than brugal anejo. But for 20$ less I would take brugal. I also could just add sugar to my brugal and it would be this at a large cost savings. I give it 8/10 because it's drinkable straight and I like the oak flavor but it's still nothing flashy. It's just good, not great, not memorable. Just good. Much like that movie you saw a month ago that was "good" but not that memorable, what was it's name again?
Nice nose, but a bit to much ethanol for me.
Rich taste but it goes to etanol after a while in the mouth..
But when swallowed.. The finish !!.. When the etanol taste leaves.. Just perfect..
The initial flavors are honey with some light vanilla, but no way as sweet as the Atlantico Private Cask. The taste turns into some subtle spices and finishes very smoothly. I like this one a lot.
Vizcaya Rum VXOP wordt gemaakt van vers geperst sap van suikerriet en wordt vervolgens voor meerdere jaren in vaten waarin voorheen bourbon whisky bevatte. Door deze specifieke opslag krijgt de Vizcaya rum VXOP een zeer fruitige en evenwichtige smaak.
a bit sweeter than I was hoping for. Not bad, just a bit too sweet.
En meget krydret rom med en dominerende "kanel-karakter". Den har en behagelig duft og krydret smag, men den mangler en anelse kompleksitet, og den udvikler sig derfor ikke alverden. 👍
An other excellent Dominican rum, balanced, subtly sweet, beautiful color. Delicate aromas of caramel and vanilla.
I like the nice decanter with heavy thick bottom.
I like this rum a lot, but it might be a little too good for my amatuer tongue. There are a lot of flavors going on that keep me from enjoying it straight as much as maybe a plainer but still smooth rum. This one also doesnt mix as well as some others, but I dont think thats what its meant for, either. However, I still enjoy it over many other rums. Maybe one day my quality as a rum drinker will raise enough for me to enjoy it more.
This is the rum I hold others to. I love this rum, I drive over an hour and a half to get my bottles. This was my first aged rum and i haven't looked back.
This delicious rum is great. Aroma, color and taste are all what you would expect in a top shelf sipping rum. I highly recommend adding this rum to your premium collection.
“Mon amie laissez le bon temps rouler!”
This is what old Cuban rum is. A modern standard for top shelf.
Everyone swears by this stuff, but I think its a little bitter to me. Not a bad rum at all, just not something i like.
Nice bottle to own and not to expensive
